Getting married is one of the most exciting times in your life from the moment your beau gets down on one knee to jetting off for a honeymoon as newlyweds. But, if you ask anyone who has been there, planning the actual wedding can get a little overwhelming especially leading up to the big day. That’s why we always recommend taking a weekend getaway to reconnect and relax with your fiancé before the madness begins.
As a twist on the tradition of exchanging gifts on the day of the wedding, use this intimate weekend leading up to the main event to exchange something special — perhaps something new you can both wear for the festivities.
We’ve teamed up with Walters & Hogsett Jewelers in Boulder, Colorado to share a few unique and beautiful pieces that you may love for one of your pre-wedding events (i.e. bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or bridesmaids brunch). Simply forward this blog post to your man for a subtle hint-hint!
Nothing says sophisticated like Marco Bicego jewelry. These hand-crafted 18K yellow-gold pieces are lightweight and style easily with a little black dress or with jeans and a button-down for your Bridal Brunch with grandma. Each timeless piece is textured by hand and is something you can wear for the rest of your life.
The gold gives a beautiful sheen when hit with sunlight meaning all eyes will be on you during your special events.
We also love this alternative engagement ring by Lauren K., a designer who creates fantastic one-of-a-kind pieces! This Cat’s Eye Tourmaline with a diamond halo set in 18K yellow gold is a unique piece to wear on special occasions like your rehearsal dinner or first anniversary. With a direct ray of light, the Cat’s Eye phenomena will appear as a bright line directly through the stone.
Elevate your patio style at the rehearsal dinner with the soft tones of rose gold to match your glass of rosé! Morganite is a beautiful peachy-pink gemstone that gives you a statement look without hurting the wallet too much — we know your fiancé will appreciate that. Pair it with a colorful black opal necklace, set horizontally for added creativity.
These pieces are by our designer Kim Collins, who specializes in hand-picked colored gemstones of all shapes and sizes! The best of the best.
Diamonds are for lovers. And, diamonds by Hearts on Fire that make you feel confident and elegant are, especially for lovers. A yellow gold bangle stack, criss-cross diamond ring, a long diamond chain, and the everyday diamond pendant are the pieces you will want in your everyday jewelry wardrobe. Your soon to be hubby can’t go wrong choosing to gift you one, or all, of these Hearts on Fire diamond pieces!
Hearts on Fire, with their perfect cut and polish of their diamonds, is made to sparkle in the most romantic lighting situations. Pack these for your honeymoon and you’ll be set for date nights on the beach or dinners by a fire.
A pear-shaped diamond necklace is one of the most feminine pieces a woman can wear because of its elegant curves. White gold (or platinum) is always the metal of choice if you want your diamonds to look their absolute best. And, if you don’t already have a pair of diamond studs, they are a jewelry box necessity! You can wear them every day, as they’ll be a subtle reminder of the one you love most. Or, pair them with the pear-shaped diamond necklace for a date night.
If your fiancé is on a budget, that’s okay because Walters & Hogsett Jewelers has a fantastic diamond stud trade-up program, meaning you can stick to your budget today and receive full retail value for what you bought towards an upgrade in the future. A win-win for your man!
Here you see pieces by Hearts on Fire, Marco Bicego and Roberto Coin.
These bold statement earrings made by Kimberly Collins are the perfect piece to wear for sharing drinks at your wedding welcome party. The earrings are made of garnet cabochons and diamond accents. Paired with the multi-colored gemstone ring by Marco Bicego and you can be sure you’ll stand out in the crowd!
Plus, after all the wedding festivities are over, these are perfect for a girls’ night out!
